The Sole Of The Foot Hurts After A Fracture?
Hello! I had a fracture in the fibula 3 months ago. Today is allowed to walk by a doctor. But for several times I walked, my feet hurt. Is it normal for the first time to walk after 3 months of not walking to walk? thanks.

There are several important structures in the human limb, such as muscles, bones, nerves, and blood vessels. In postoperative conditions, where some of these structures are not used for a long time, it will take some time (days to weeks) to adjust and return to normal. During this time, you can feel a number of things, such as:
Muscles that appear smaller than before or compared to the next leg (if used), this is called muscle atrophy. Cramps in the legs when used Pain in areas affected by touch or pressure. In this case the sole of the foot is usually used as a weight support. You do not need to worry because it is part of healing and adjusting the structure of your feet to be able to move normally as usual. To reduce these effects, patients are often asked to keep moving the body that is not affected (for example toes, or other areas) either actively or passively (assisted by others to be moved). However, if you feel pain that you feel is out of tolerance (very painful), is felt even if the foot is not used, or does not improve after a few days, do not hesitate to consult a specialist orthopedic surgeon (orthopedic) who handled you before.
Thus, hopefully can help.
